Before a standing only crowd, a question about whether candidates would hire relatives was asked.
The question was answered in the negative by all the candidates on the ballot but one.
Both candidates for Township Clerk–Susan Jennings and Angela Koscavage–said they would not.
“I would not have anyone working for me,” Jennings said.
“No, I will not,” Koscavage concurred. “Not a single one.”
Next up were the two remaining candidates for Township Supervisor–Bridgett Provenzano and Lee Jennings.
Provenzano: “I guess the answer is absolutely not.”
Jennings: “Absolutely not.”
A third person who filed for Supervisor–Oakwood Hills Trustee Kerry Leigh–has dropped out, but too late for her name to be removed from the ballot.
There are three candidates for Road Commissioner:
- “Iron Mike” Lesperance
- Rob Parrish
- Don Kopsell
“No nepotism. Just me,” said Rob Parrish.
“Yes, my wife is the best secretary the Township has ever had or ever seen,” incumbent Road Commissioner Don Kopsell replied. He explained that he had had three secretaries that didn’t work out. “I have all the faith in the world in my wife.”
“No, my family is all gainfully employed,” Lesperance said. He said that he would depend on family members to keep his business going.
